You have been invited to take part in a conversation by the Village Square designed to help liberal and conservative citizens better understand each others' concerns. In order to help us improve these conversations, the Village Square has partnered with CivilPolitics.org to ask you a few questions before and after the event. It is our hope that what we learn from these events can help others work to bring groups together across a number of domains.

Please give us your opinions on the following page, which should take no more than 5-10 minutes. At the end, there will be an opportunity to provide us with feedback about anything that was unclear.

In order for us to track the effects of the conversation, we need to be able to link people's responses before and after the event, while still preserving everyone's anonymity. To do that, we'd like you to choose a 4-6 word or numerical code. You'll need to remember it, so we suggest you choose the last four digits of a phone number you know well or the name of someone you hold dear, such as a family member, or if nothing comes to mind there, then the last four digits of one of your previous phone numbers--whichever one you remember best.
